QuantumSphere Wins 2015 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award
Award Cites Large Chemical Market Opportunities for QuantumSphere’s FeNIX Nanocatalyst
SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — QuantumSphere, Inc. (OTCQB:QSIM), a leading producer of advanced catalyst technologies for industrial chemical processes, announced today that Frost & Sullivan has presented QuantumSphere with its 2015 North American Nanocatalysts Technology Innovation Award. Frost & Sullivan is a 54-year-old research and consulting company with 1,800 analysts, growth consultants and visionaries operating from over 40 global offices.
The Frost & Sullivan award states that “QuantumSphere’s ability to enhance ammonia production with its FeNIXTM nanocatalyst coating promises commercial growth for the company as ammonia producers adopt this exciting new technology. Frost & Sullivan finds enormous market opportunities for FeNIX across the globe.”
Ammonia is one of the most critical chemicals produced in the world with nearly $100 billion in annual global production, consuming nearly 5 percent of the world’s natural gas. Over 80 percent of ammonia output is used in agricultural fertilizer production, which indirectly supplies over 50 percent of all protein consumed by humans.
Kevin Maloney, President and CEO of QuantumSphere, stated, “We are very pleased to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan which recognizes the significant market potential of our FeNIX catalyst accelerator and its ability to deliver measurable improvements in operating efficiencies to chemical producers. Our commercial validation results to date indicate that FeNIX can increase ammonia production efficiencies by 10 to 15 percent, depending on plant size and configuration, and result in millions of additional profits for a typical medium-sized ammonia plant each year over the life of the catalyst.”
QSI is now collaborating on initial commercialization efforts with industry leader Casale, S.A. (“Casale”). QSI signed a Joint Development Agreement with Casale in May 2015 for product development, marketing, and global sales. Casale supplies the converter technology responsible for producing nearly 40 percent of the world’s ammonia and methanol production.
